Fox digs up another two years of ‘Bones’

The Fox TV network says it has ordered two additional seasons of its popular U.S. crime drama Bones.

While the U.S. network will officially announce its new TV line-up Monday, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday that Fox has ordered two more full seasons.

The drama, which recently concluded its fourth season, follows a forensic anthropology team that helps an FBI agent solve homicides. The series stars Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz.

The Times said the network's Bones order comes after it renewed several of its other hit series, including American Idol, 24, The Simpsons and Family Guy.

Fox also has ordered additional seasons to fledgling series such as Fringe, Lie to Me and Dollhouse.

While a new season order has yet to be made for Fox's medical drama House, the Times said that series is expected to return this fall.
